Eh, never trust someone you met over the Internet ;) I've actually used 
that same page as a starting point for my tests and it's definitely not 
usable for me.

Don't know much about proxmox but it seems to be the right approach, use 
openvz for stuff that is distro/kernel/OS agnostic and KVM/XEN/whatever 
for full virtualization.

I'm now trying to achieve the same thing using openvz-xen kernel, but 
only not to waste all the work i've invested in getting the xen cluster 
going. Maybe I'll move to kvm after all, but I don't know yet if it 
would read xen disk images.
